ROME - Italy said yesterday that it will seek the extradition of the Palestinian militant Abul Abbas, who was captured by U.S. forces in Baghdad this week, 18 years after he led a terrorist group that killed an American on a hijacked Italian cruise ship. Italian courts sentenced Abbas in absentia to multiple life terms a year after he masterminded the 1985 hijacking of the Achille Lauro cruise liner, which carried hundreds of passengers, including Leon Klinghoffer, a 69-year-old, wheelchair-using American who was shot in the head and thrown overboard.

WASHINGTON -- Opening the Madrid peace conference in late 1991, President George Bush summoned a vision of "a Middle East no longer victimized by fear and terror, a Middle East where normal men and women lead normal lives."Even as the astonishing prospect of a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization seems to herald a new era in Arab-Israeli relations, Mr. Bush's goal remains elusive. Outside the peace process, a different Middle East is already emerging, torn by religious furies and a crisis of government legitimacy that will threaten its people and the interests of the United States and its allies indefinitely.

Victor Dorman, 80, who as chairman of Dorman Cheese Co. helped change the way Americans bought cheese by putting "the paper between the slices," died March 4 of heart failure related to muscular dystrophy at his home in Delray Beach, Fla. For decades, the family-managed business specialized in the sale of large quantities of such varieties as Swiss, Muenster, Edam, mozzarella, provolone, Jarlsberg and Gouda. In the early 1950s, the company figured out with machinery makers how to package sliced cheese without the pieces sticking together.

Shlomo Goren, a former chief rabbi of Israel and an outspoken critic of Israeli reconciliation with the Palestine Liberation Organization, died Saturday after suffering a heart attack. He was 77. Rabbi Goren, who served as Israel's chief rabbi from 1973-1983, was often at the center of controversy. A year ago, he issued a religious ruling that soldiers could refuse orders to dismantle Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank. Rabbi Goren's call for disobedience was given special weight because he served as chief military chaplain during the 1967 Middle East War, reaching the rank of brigadier general.

When the National Security Agency trains its agents in the highly technical art of eavesdropping, they naturally need to practice.And the law gives them the right to practice on you.NSA agents can hone their listening skills and test their equipment on the most intimate telephone calls of ordinary U.S. citizens, as long as notes and tapes are destroyed "as soon as reasonably possible.""We listened to all the calls in and out of Washington," says one former NSA linguist, recalling a class at the Warrenton Training Center, a CIA communications school on a Virginia hilltop.
